AWS Database Architecture Best Practices

Learn about architecture best practices for combining AWS storage and database technologies. We outline AWS storage options like Amazon EBS, Amazon EC2 Instance Storage, Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier.

This video also presents the AWS database options including Amazon ElastiCache (in-memory data store), Amazon RDS (SQL database), Amazon DynamoDB (NoSQL database), Amazon CloudSearch (search), Amazon EMR (hadoop) and Amazon Redshift (data warehouse). Then we discuss how to architect your database tier by using the right database and storage technologies to achieve the required functionality, performance, availability, and durability—at the right cost.
